Information visualization expert Matthias Shapiro will lead the training.
Because the training includes hands-on labs in which you will build a complex visualization, a laptop is required. You should have Microsoft Excel and some image editing software installed. For image editing, Photoshop is preferred, but free programs such as Paint.NET for PC and Gimp for Mac are sufficient.
Ideal candidates should have either a graphic design background, a technical background in programming or web-based development, or PR or communication background with interest in data-driven narrative.
The format will include some mathematical concepts, but automated algorithmic resources will be provided.
